I'm still waiting for someone to come up with a 1/1.7" super zoom. Maybe even a 1" sensor zoom.

Fuji has the 1/1.7". It needs a little improvement yet. Nikon's 1" is crying out for two handfuls of DSLR body and as much superzoom as can be packed onto it.

The FZ50: DSLR handling of a bright, non-extending Leica 35-420mm F2.8-3.7 lens. I live in hope that Mr Ichiro Kitao, Mr Michiharu Uematsu and Mr Yoshiyuki Inoue have triggered the update to the FZ50. Please update the FZ50. It is unique and users of it cannot update without compromise of one or more of its combination of features.

Nikon wants us to use their DSLR lenses on the Nikon 1 when longer focal lengths are required.  Unfortunately, these lenses were never designed to resolve the higher density pixels from the Nikon 1.  Not sure when/if we will ever see 200mm+ native lenses for the Nikon 1.
